    Hi Apocaly, I really like how your Micra turned out with the springs and the rims. May I know what model the RSR spring are and the size of wheels you are running on? Any comments on the ride quality?

    The springs are RS-R N008D. Wheels are 15x7 with dunlop direzzas 102 205/55/R15. The stiffer springs are great improvement in handling overall but don't handle big bumps or potholes very well.

    Thank you very much! If you dont mind, may I know where you ordered the springs from? Also if there's any rubbing on the wheel well with that setup?

    I ordered the springs from https://www.rhdjapan.com/. There is no rubbing on the wheel wells

    You can feel the bumps more but thats the compromise with stiffer/lower springs. It stays much flatter in the corners and a lot less body roll.
